Posted on 22. Oct, 2010 by in Blog

The American Experience film Freedom Riders retraces the route of the original 1961 Rides. It  was officially launched as the 2011 Student Freedom Ride, October 20, 2010. You can read about it in this New York Times article: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/10/21/business/media/21adco.html?ref=media
And see the launch video here: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/americanexperience/freedomriders/2011/?page_id=2

PBS wants to spread the word about this truly amazing opportunity for college students to “get on the bus” and get inspired to renew the tradition of civic engagement that has fueled every major social advancement we’ve made in this country. If you know college students or parents of college students or college professors– or really anyone who is looking to inspire young people to learn, engage, and make a difference– please share this with them.
